Mr. Shabooboo: If they find any skeletons with the ribs bent outward, were screwed..


No, not really.  I mean, if a little girl with no training could survive for weeks, I imagine we'd be OK.

Just stay out of dark places where they can surprise you.

If the videos I saw of Aliens: Colonial Marines are correct, and I have no reason to doubt their veracity, then basically all we need to do is stand still in locations that cause the aliens to fail at generating correct path to us. They'll just stand still waiting for us to move out of the location and we can dispatch them at our leisure.

I think those archaeologists should stop playing with their balls and get back to work.

I'm thinking Pieces of Eden.

Maybe it's just me, but those "orbs" look remarkably like another material that I've seen in nature.  I'm not sure of their common name, but the technical term is "rocks".

My guess is that they made the "Fool's Gold" glow with torches in order to fleece the rubes.

/You know; like the GOP

Did the orbs ask for a new battery?

Dear everyone who ever writes about archaeology;
The people of the past were just as fascinated by shiny things as we are today.  There is nothing remotely mysterious about this.  Shiny things look neat, so we use them to decorate stuff.  The idea that the past was "mysterious," or that people of the past had access to some "technology far in advance of our own" is just stupid, so please stop it.  They were just as big a collection of nitwits and dumbasses as we are.

Yours sincerely;
FloydA

In other news, archaeologists are using cool looking robots that carry smaller robots that can fly to explore ancient ruins.

Wait...so you're saying that it wasn't "ritual behavior"?

They are the Olmec's version of benwa balls disposed after one use.

Soon to be I suppose - last semester before prelims. I should be reading right now - but what else really needs to be said about the Eastern Woodlands? Blah blah blah Jimmy Griffin said so, blah blah. Besides, I couldn't resist the oldest joke in the archey book.

I just watched AvP not that long ago, and my ears perked up when I heard a bit of Morse at the very beginning, so I 'rewound' it and replayed it with a pen and paper handy, and to my surprise, this is what is sent:

WHOEVER WINS WE LOOSE

Cute little Easter egg, but of course not as good as the "SHOW ME THE MONKEY" one in the Peter Jackson's King Kong.
